The Building Blocks of Life

Salt, Vitamin C, and Magnesium are essential to human life.  Learn the details of those and other essential nutrients and elements, and a couple of big NO-NO's.

Salt deficiency is associated with low pH, which is in turn associated with many health problems, such as low kidney, liver, and brain function; disruption of enzymatic activity; poor immune function; hormonal imbalances; and a host of chronic degenerative diseases including cancer.

Salt bars were used as currency for thousands of years. Governments collected taxes in salt. Roman soldiers were paid in salt, and we get the word salary from the Latin for salt.

The body needs the Chloride from salt to detoxify, to make the right amount of HCL in the stomach for digestion, to clean neurons, and to help white blood cell neutrophils make HOCL to combat bacteria.


Any human completely cut off from Vitamin C will quickly grow sick with scurvy.  It takes about 30 days.  If they still don't get Vitamin C they will die within 90 to 120 days. 

Lucky for us, most other plants and animals on earth make their own vitamin C.  Like it or not, we get our vitamin C by consuming them.

Vitamin C is needed for the growth and repair of tissues throughout the body. It helps the body make collagen, an important protein used to make skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels.   Vitamin C is needed for healing wounds, and for repairing and maintaining bones and teeth.

Vitamin C deficiency may be the root cause of many of our diseases today.  The only mammals that don't make vitamin C are the human, the monkey, and the guinea pig.  It's of the utmost importance to our health that we are flush with vitamin C.

There are many forms of vitamin C but they are all forms of ascorbic acid.    The word ascorbate comes from anticorbutic, meaning to fight scurvy, A- (meaning "No") and Scorbutus (Scurvy.)   Ascorbic acid is one form of vitamin C.  Ascorbate is another form.  And yet another form of scientifically made vitamin C is L-Ascorbate.  I recommend only L-Ascorbate as a supplemental form because of it's bioavailability to our cells.

Scurvy does not occur in most animals as they can make their own vitamin C.  However, humans and other higher primates lack an enzyme (L-gulonolactone oxidase) necessary for such synthesis and must obtain vitamin C through their diet.

Humans require vitamin C in their diets to make the building blocks for collagen.

Initial symptoms of vitamin c deficiency, and scurvy can be:

Feeling very tired and weak all the time (fatigue)
A general sense of feeling "out of sorts" – such as feeling irritable and miserable all the time
Pain in your limbs – particularly your legs

Magnesium drives our mitochondria for energy and feeling good.  When we apply magnesium chloride to our skin, MgCl, the Mg helps our cells rid themselves of toxins, and the single chloride helps clear our kidneys of toxins.  The healthcare industry is very good at making products that treat symptoms but never give the cure.  Many of the products they sell initially give an opiate like feel good feeling.  The these same products contain reductase inhibitors, they won't let the liver detoxify, and this keeps you coming back for more.  It's of the utmost importance that our skin, lungs, intestines and kidneys are functioning at 100%

We simply cannot get enough magnesium.

When any of these first three essentials are consumed in excess, Salt, Vitamin C, and Magnesium, the body will detox the extra, and some of it's retained toxins along with it. 

The most essential element for a developing baby is iodine.  The best way for the baby to get iodine is from mom's breast milk.  Iodine is the most important element for any human, baby or adult.

Humans come from the sea, and when we are disconnected from the ocean, sickness is sure to follow.  There is a lot of misinformation about Iodine harming people.  It is simply NOT true. However, iodine is a tool, and to use a tool properly it's important to know how it works.  You don't want to run a lawnmower barefoot. 

Toxins - Iodine moves toxins, and when we move any toxins around inside our body, it's extremely important that our detox pathways are open.  The toxins need to be dispelled, and not just redistributed.  To jump start your system, and get the bowels running properly, dump your current poisonous load of bile with the a buffered L-Ascorbte Cleanse.

Apoptosis - Programmed cell death.  Iodine orders cells to die when it’s time for them to go.  The developing baby in the womb has webbed fingers and toes, until iodine steps in and orders this webbing to disintegrate.  Iodine stimulates dormant hair follicles, and replaces old scars with new skin.

Bacteria – Iodine kills single celled bacteria on contact.  It destroys topical fungus.  Iodine can be applied topically or taken internally with liquid.

Disinfectant – Iodine disinfects dirty water at 20 drops per gallon.

Radiation – When we are filled up with iodine, our thyroids will be safe from radiation.  We are much less likely to be poisoned by heavy metals or halogens if we have sufficient iodine in our systems, because those heavy metals can not sit down on iodine receptor sites if iodine is already there

Iodine and Iodized Salt - Iodine comes from the sea, and not from glacial waters.  In the middle ages entire villages of cretins were being discovered in the Swiss Alps.  In the 1920's, 50% of the children in Ohio had goiters, a visible swelling of the thyroid gland in their necks.  This is the reason iodized salt was introduced in 1926 as a healthcare intervention.  However, the U.S. RDA of 150mcg is just barely enough to prevent us from having a visible goiter.  150mcg is the amount of iodine we need to stay alive.  150mcg of iodine prevents us from being visibly sick, but allows the healthcare industry to continue profiting by treating iodine deficiencies.

Mercury means arthritis, bacteria, chronic infections, fungus, and more.  Mercury is the most dangerous heavy metal because of it's affinity for sulfur, and we are loaded with sulfur.  Many of the most common ailments are caused by bacteria taking mercury into their cells.  They are called mercury reductase bacteria, or MerA.  MerA examples are Babesia, Candida, H. Pylori, and Lyme.  When we kill off these bacteria, the mercury is released, and the body, treating the mercury as an allergen, stays chronically inflamed.  Not until the mercury is removed can the body fully kill off the bacteria.

Our bodies do everything they can to protect us from acute mercury poisoning, because an acute stage can cause organ failure, like an aneurysm,  appendicitis, heart attack, or renal failure.  If we move too much mercury too fast, we can move ourselves from a chronic/constant state of poisoning into the acute stage.  The body lets the bacteria remain as it helps suspend the mercury. 

Do NOT take acetaminophen/paracetamol, or any product that contains it.  Read labels carefully.  Be extremely careful of any OTC medicine.  Acetaminophen is a reductase inhibitor, meaning it won’t let your liver detoxify.  It’s made from coal tar.  Throw this stuff in the garbage.  It’s purposely designed so that your body can NOT get rid of the toxins that are making you sick.  It ‘work’s by preventing you from reacting to offending allergens.  Tylenol contains acetaminophen.  Nyquil contains acetaminophen.  Sudafed contains acetaminophen.  Antidepressants contain acetaminophen or some other type of reductase inhibitor.  Statins will not let your body detoxify.  There are more than 25,000 emergency room visits a year because of Tylenol.


I teach how to protect ourselves from the toxins of our environments, workplaces, homes, and from our food and water. There are some very simple habits that help build defenses to insecticides, the poisonous halogens, bromine, chlorine, and fluoride, and toxic metals like aluminum and mercury.
